Women ‘deliberately post ugly pics of friends’
According to research, women will intentionally post unattractive pictures of their friends online for revenge or to make themselves look better.
Being tagged in disgusting/embarrassing/shocking/degrading/poorly timed photos is now as much as part of the nation’s Sunday mornings as Hollyoaks, hangovers and bacon sandwiches.
But why?! Surely your friends are sensitive enough to realise that you perhaps don’t want the world to see pictures of you falling out of your clothes whilst being given a piggy back home at 4am.
And as much as you don’t want the world to see them, you want you mum to see them even less!
Now it turns out that there’s a good chance those photos were uploaded with the sole intention of p*ssing you off.
According to reserach carried out by Mymemory.com one in four women deliberately posts unflattering photographs of their friends on sites such as Facebook.
Their reasons vary, but none are nice. Most said they do it as a result of falling out (however temporarily) with their friends, whereas a third claimed that it was because they were exacting revenge on those who had done the same to them.
One in five women even said they would refuse to take down photos when asked to by those who had been the victim of their malicious tagging sprees. Well that’s not very nice.
Co-founder of the site, Rebecca Huggler, said: ‘To see that so many women deliberately commit ‘photo sabotage’ and upload unflattering pictures of friends is somewhat surprising, particularly when you consider how many said they’d be mad if the same was done to them.
‘Photo sabotage is never kind, but I think we’ve all seen pictures on social networking sites that we know the ‘victim’ won’t be happy with. It’s always a good idea to check with your friends before uploading; they’ll thank you, and it could prevent some serious fallout.’
